How to Search Stephens County Records

It isn’t free, but with an online connection, you can access the website OKCountyRecords.com and run a limited search for Stephens County Oklahoma records, such as an oil and gas lease or deed, mining leases, mineral deeds, transfer on death deeds, look for buyers of minerals, or a specific owner who recently sold mineral rights. In searching for anything filed in the Oklahoma Stephens County Clerks office, the main limitation is that the online data is indexed only back to February 1996 and scanned images back to May 1995.

With respect to records filed prior in the county, as owners of properties, mineral rights, or other interests, and to view leases and deeds, you will need to visit the county seat, the fine city of Duncan located in the Sooner State to review the records and get any copies which your lands or estate may be subject to.
